  • My Kindle Fire Died :(

    My Kindle Fire was one of my best friends. We did lots of things together, we surfed the internet, we watched movies, we went on instagram, and we texted my friends. One day it stopped charging, I tried to save it as much as I could before it died. Then, my mom and I took it to several stores, but there was nothing they could do. Rest in Peace.
